Prayer for Peace

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace; where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light;
and where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; to be understood, as to understand; to be loved, as to love; for it is in giving that we receive, it is in pardoning that we are pardoned, and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. Amen.
—St. Francis of Assisi, 13th century

Prayer Requests

Each day in prayer, we open ourselves to the transforming power of God. In our prayer as individuals and as community, we delight in God's love in a spirit of thanks and praise.  Our ministry of prayer unites us with God whose power in all of us can accomplish more than we can ever hope for or imagine. Often people ask us to remember their special concerns and petitions in our prayers. We are privileged to receive such requests for prayer, and we treat each one with care and reverence.

We would be most happy to pray for any intentions through our Prayers Please Request Line. When you click on the candle below, you will find a very user-friendly prayer-request form. Your request will then go to our Provincial Houses in Albany, Los Angeles, St. Louis and St. Paul where our Senior Sisters will pray for your intentions. We are so honored to remember you and your loved ones in our prayers.


You might also like to use our Prayer Please Phone App to send your prayer requests. You may send a prayer request to us from your smartphone. Download our free Prayers Please app by searching "Prayers Please" in your app store. Submit a request and Sisters of St. Joseph from all over the country will pray for your intentions.
